Description 

The Tilt wall is located off the North Bank Trail east of the Bowspitzer Wall. The wall offers great steep sport routes and an beautiful setting. The wall faces SE, but gets plenty of shade because of the trees.

Routes from L -> R:

A. Quick Tease, 5.11+, bolts.
B. Span Dangler, 5.11+, bolts.
CD. Full Tilt, 5.13-, bolts.
D. TNT, 5.12, bolts.
E. Tailpipe, 5.12, bolts.

Getting There 

Getting there for the first time can be a bit frustrating. Take the North Bank Trail east up Taylor Canyon. After passing a boulder on your right and The Bowspitzer (a cool bolted arete) watch for a stream (sometimes a trickle) coming from your left. Past the stream/trickle a trail should go left. Follow the trail up the gulch, across a small talus field, then look up and right to locate the tilt wall.

Hard right off the ground.... route has multiple cruxes and awesome climbing on beautiful, golden granite. The grade is tentative. It might be harder, it's probably not easier....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
